Homogenisation push threat to Indian federalism: TN Minister Thiagarajan

Homogenisation push threat to Indian federalism: TN Minister Thiagarajan

Thiruvananthapuram, Feb 4 (UNI) Attempt at homogenisation by the ruling party at the centre is a worrying threat to the federal structure of India and this approach will sooner or later trigger a pushback against such efforts, Tamil Nadu Finance Minister Palanivel Thiagarajan said at the Mathrubhumi International Festival of Letters here on Saturday.
The minister was debating the subject of Reimagining India -- Federalism with Shashi Tharoor, Congress MP from Thiruvananthapuram.
Pointing out the disparity in tax allocation by the central government, as northern states get greater share due to factors like high population, Thiagarajan said southern states like Tamil Nadu and Kerala had achieved developmental targets set by the national governments in areas of population control, but now effectively penalised for that due to the proportional population figures leaves them at a disadvantage.
